NEW YORK (WFAN) -- The ESPN "30 for 30" documentary on Mike & the Mad Dog is scheduled to air in February, Mike Francesa said on his show Monday.

"We're looking forward to it," Francesa said. "And it's a documentary that'll be there forever, so it's kind of nice."

Francesa and Russo worked together for 19 years on WFAN before their show ended in 2008. Francesa still hosts a show on weekday afternoons on WFAN. Russo now has his own channel on Sirius XM.

Meanwhile, Mike & the Mad Dog have been nominated for induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame. Public voting began Monday and runs through June 30.

"Obviously, it would be a great honor," Francesa said on his show. "You guys, all of you out there, are the reason why we have been doing this as long as we have, why we've had the careers that we've had, why we've had the success we have, we're very appreciative for the support."
